What is unilateral fitness training?
Most of us use both arms or both legs at the same time during our fitness workouts but unilateral fitness training is focusing on one limb at a time. Most athletes and people who perform fitness workouts focus on bilateral training, but it is also important to perform unilateral movements especially when one limb is weaker then the other. A great aspect of Myosource Kinetic Bands / resistance bands is that while the user is performing a unilateral leg fitness workout the muscles in the other leg are still being activated. Notice in this video how when the user is focusing on the right leg/knee the bands are still activating the muscles in the left. This is an awesome way to perform unilateral fitness workout.
